Snow Play Photos

After Molly did some rodent hunting in the snow, I decided she needed some more active exercise to stay warm.

I got out the trusty treat ball.

If your dog loves treat dispensing toys, take one out in the snow and get ready to laugh!

Enjoy the little things!

Enjoying the little things like the birds at the window feeder is the best part of some days

If you have a window you frequently look out, try adding a feeder.

The birds will get used to you and let you take closeup photos of them.

Play with the toys, it is enough

to wear any Boxer puppy out!

Winter Window to my World

One of my favorite Christmas ornaments are my glass icicles, I have all kinds of them and this year, when I took down the tree, I decided to keep them out.

With the deep cold we have been having, it is fitting to have them hanging in my kitchen window.

Flowers lift the spirits and add color to a rather grey world.

Black Light on Ice is Nice!

I saw an idea in a magazine and wanted to give it a try.
In the snow, was nestled some rope lights coiled into a tight roll, on top of the snow they surrounded the lights with icicles. It looked like a snow castle glowing in the snow.

Since I couldnt find icicles on the house, I went to the creek , a different look but the idea is the same. We used green lights and placed them in a stump . On top we arranged the clumps of ice from the creek. When the sun started to sink I got the camera out. The first picture shows a lot of purple from the sunset, then it went to black light green.

I was intrigued by the swirls of colors in the ice and the forms with in.

It looks just like it was lit with black lights.

Vasoline ware is a type of antique glass that looks like this when lit with a black light.
